We Just Found 3 'Secret' Weekends for the Best Deals in Vegas
Vegas has its own hotel math: Take a midweek room rate, multiply it by two or three, and you'll get a figure that should never surprise you on weekends. Unless, of course, you know the right weekends to book.
To that end, we've just checked every Friday-Sunday for the entire summer and uncovered three "secret" weekends when you can save up to 55% on surrounding dates at top Sin City hotels. And just between us, here are the best times:
We've also picked out some of our favorite deals for each of the three. But many of these rates will be the first to go, so if you're even thinking of a weekend in Vegas this summer, request your vacation time now. Oh wait, you don't have to. (The beauty of a weekend trip!)
Bellagio: June 29 - July 1, July 20-22, Aug. 17-19 ... $215-$239 (45% off)
In addition to its iconic dancing fountains, the AAA 5-Diamond property offers five pools, floating massages and private cabanas with misting systems to combat the desert sun. The hotel is also home to an indoor botanical garden, art gallery and aquatic masterpiece “O” by Cirque du Soleil.
Excalibur: June weekends … $92-$101 per night (35% off)
The castle-like Excalibur is one of the few family-friendly options on the Strip with carnival and arcade games, a waterslide and live-action dinner theater complete with jousting knights. Budget-conscious grownups will find low table minimums in the sprawling casino—and free, air-conditioned tram rides to Mandalay Bay and Luxor.
Delano: June 22-24, June 29 - July 1 … $166-$170 per night (55% off)
This AAA 4-Diamond non-gaming hotel has a decidedly retreat-like vibe—think white-on-white decor, a huge spa and a guests-only pool with a submerged chess set. Still, you'll be surrounded by mega resorts here, so casinos, concert halls and nightclubs are never more than a dice throw away.
Park MGM Las Vegas: June 29 - July 1; July 20-22; Aug. 17-19 … $98-$114 per night (40% off)
Get here soon, and you'll be among the first to experience the hotel's totally remodeled rooms (with optional upgrades that include special lighting to suppress melatonin and reduce jet lag). Just in time for summer, the hotel has also unveiled a new complex with three pools and two outdoor bars.
Vdara: Aug. 17-19 … $143 per night (35% off)
Apartment-style accommodations, the absence of a casino and proximity to the CityCenter’s designer shops make this 5-star hotel ideal for anyone looking to experience Vegas’ quieter side. After a shopping spree, you can chill in a private rooftop plunge pool, rehydrate at the smoothie bar or detox in the spa's eucalyptus-infused steam room.
M Resort: All dates through September … $95 per night (55% off)
Vegas aficionados know that there's more to Sin City than what you can find on the Strip. This AAA 4-Diamond resort combines a sprawling gaming floor with upscale rooms and dining options — not to mention the hip pool scene that is popular with locals and visitors alike. Located about 15 minutes from the airport, the resort also offers free shuttles to the Strip if you want to spend some time in the middle of the action.
